PITTSBURG, KS.--- A piece of technology helps Pittsburg State University students gain insight on the future of the construction industry.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, also known as UAV's or drones, can go as high as 400 feet up in the air. PSU's College of Construction students will use the flying camera to survey construction sites.
Professors say companies will start depending on the technology to inspect harder to reach or dangerous areas. Teachers add drones teach students about critical laws in the construction industry.
"How they need to use this to protect themselves because the video coming off of it or photographs coming off of it, OSHA could use it and give them fines for unsafe things," said Bill Strenth, Construction Professor.
Strenth says exposing students to drones will make them more competitive in the job market.
